Giadl 9x>em 



A world aflame with fury 
\ waits us at the turn. 
We leave our source of knowledge, 
But still have more to learn. 

\head there lies our future; 
Who knows what it may hold? 
One thing alone is certain: 
A new world we must mold. 

We're leaving Searles to enter 
A seething world at war, 
To do our part in winning 
The peace we're fighting for. 

Our high school days together 
We never shall forget; 
Forever we'll remember 
The friends that here we've met. 

"Excelsior" be our watchword 
Along our upward way, 
Until we see the dawning 
Of a fairer, brighter day. 



— Fred Nutton

Q£aM Utitoty, 



^) HE historj of the I lass of I'M.! i- unlike the narrative records of pre- 
mm \ious \ears. Our class, not unfortunate, hul proud of the lask be- 
WSS ^ stowed upon inn chosen generation in a world at war, has been affected 
by the "\ ictorj Campaign," and the patriotic fervor which, since December 
7th, I'M I. lias surrounded these ivy-covered walls. In the heart of ever) 
graduate is the desire I'm a lasting, enduring peace. We are the citizens of 
tomorrow; we shall fight for the preservation of democracy! 

\- bewildered Sophomores, we unaware of these realities, and of the dis- 
turbing clouds ahead, as we entered this enchanting Castle of Knowledge in 
the fall of 1940. Our anxieties diminished as we became accustomed to the 
helpful, encouraging teachers: and we enthusiastically delved into our 
studies with earnest efforts. Our first assembly on the lawn was held on a 
sunny September day for the purpose of electing class officers. Frank Atlam- 
son was elected as president: William Bunting, vice-president; Ruth Dean, 
>ecrelary; and Sidney Scarth, treasurer. Ruth White and Claire Abercrom- 
bie were chosen to serve on the Student Council. 

We were officially welcomed into the High School by the senior class in 
October at the Sophomore Reception. Dancing and refreshments were en- 
joyed by all. In March, we held the Sophomore Party which proved to be a 
success, and a credit to all serving on the entertainment and refreshment 
committees. Dancing was enjoyed to the music of Tommy Sousa and his 
orchestra. 

With renewed vigor we commenced our junior year. Frank Aclamson 
was re-elected president; Whitney Hager, vice-president; Ruth Dean, sec- 
retary, and Ruth White, treasurer. Raymond Whitehead and Harry Harris 
were selected to represent our class at the Student Council. 

\ We shall never forget the morning of December 8th, 1941. In our His- \J 
tory classes we listened to the Declaration of War by President Roosevelt 
and the Congress over the radio. This eventful day changed many of the 
chosen careers of our classmates. 

At this period our hearts were also saddened at the sudden death of Miss 
Lord, the Dean of Girls, who for so long had guided us with friendly en- 
couragement. 

Despite the sorrowful atmosphere, and the prediction of a troubled fu- 
ture, we held the annual Junior Party in February at the Central School hall. 

50 



1943 Edward F. Searles High School 

Red and white valentine decorations and baloons comprised a colorful back- 
ground for dancing. Music was provided by Carron's Orchestra. 

Time sped on; and the Class Ring was chosen by a capable committee. 
The simplicity and charm of the plain-gold "Victory" ring, with the tra- 
ditional Searles tower mounting captivated the hearts of everyone. Our 
rings won the envious admiration of both upper and lower classmates. 

As the months quickly flew by, we eagerly anticipated the presentation 
of the Washington and Franklin medal for excellency in American history. 
Because of the conservation of metal, a certificate, as equally important as 
the medal, was awarded to Carlo Tabellario. The other honor students re- 
ceiving history books were Ethel Hoelzel and David Young. 

The scrap-metal drives began at the close of our junior year. Silk stock- 
ings, keys, books and Red Cross articles were also collected in each of the 
home-rooms. The Collection drives were assuredly and patriotically suc- 
cessful. 

Before we realized it our junior year came quickly to a close. We were 
Seniors — Seniors who were now seriously striving for higher goals, aims 
and ambitions. We resolved to improve and advance the capacity of know- 
ledge that we already had received in our sophomore and junior years. 

With this challenge before us, we entertained the sophomore class at a re- 
ception held at the Central School hall. A grand march, led by the senior 
and sophomore class officers was featured during the evening. Music for 
dancing was furnished by Al Michael and his orchestra. 

Our next social event, the Senior Play, was successfully presented in De- 
\^ cember at the Central School hall. "Young Barry" was directed by Miss 
Alice Littlejohn, while John Barry, the leading man received top honors for 
his remarkable performance. 

Meanwhile the senior girls had been aiding the local Red Cross Chapter 
by making surgical sponges and bandages at the Nevins Home. Our school 
had been practicing air-raid drills, and as a result, we managed to learn to 
clear the building in two minutes. 

Despite the shortage of gasoline and tires, we held the Senior Party, ad- 
vocating the use of "shank's mare" for transportation. As the dance was in 
the form of a Campus Party, we wore our flashiest sport clothes. Betty Jane 
Cnosson was chosen Campus Queen; music for dancing was provided by 
Russ Matheson. 

After this enjoyable event, we realized that the days until graduation were 
numbered, and we launched our magazine drive, which proved to be more 

51 



I H\\ \kd F. m \ki i - llii.ii S< iiool 1943 



successful than an) other year, thus cutting down the price of our Year 
Book. 

March brought the .'^Tili Vnnual Military Ball. Majpr Uphonse I'ankau- 
^ki and Henrietta Busta led the spectacular grand march. Company \, 
under Colb) \\ elniore. won die drill competition. The colorful formal 
gowns and the blue military uniforms were quickly combined on the dance- 
floor when Roland Russell began his sophisticated rhythmns. 

\t this time many of our classmates who were planning to attend college 
acquired their diplomas earlier, and left their senior year to he-^in the early 
college semesters. Others took the Army and Navy tests, and enlisted prior 
to their graduation. We also began our War Stamp and Bond drive, and in 
our first week raised approximately $950.00 for victory. The walls of our 
school were covered with posters urging us to buy, and buy again. We 
patriotically and generously responded. 

As our senior days were drawing to a close, it came time to elect a repre- 
sentative for the Daughters of the American Revolution Convention held an- 
nuallv in Boston. Ruth Dean, our class secretary for the past four years, 
was chosen for her good citizenship. 

Our last social event, the Senior Prom, was held in the Central School 
hall. This semi-formal affair will constantly linger in our memories in 
the days to come. 

Now we have reached the end of our quest. We must leave behind this 
beautiful ivy-covered edifice, and its pleasant memories, and face the world 
alone. We cannot foretell the uncertain future. In a world at war, we shall 
march onward and upward until we have attained peace, success, and 
happiness.

Ruth: Ray! What a surprise to see you! 

Ray: Hi, Ruth; pretty nice airport Mert Margolis has here. I see his 
chief mechanics are Dick Hill, George Lowe, William Arnold and Billy 
Beier. 

Ruth: Yes; I notice your plane is the same model as mine. Did you 
know they were designed by the Barry and Woodburn Company? Helen 
Melnicki and Helen Panazuk are secretaries, while Barbara Bleakley and 
Josephine Bistany work as bookkeepers. 

Roy: Yes, so I heard. By the way, where are you going? 

Ruth: Oh, I'm on my way to see Beano Rogers at the hospital. They 
tell me he's swallowed too many of George Cox's vitamin pills. 

Ray: What a coincidence! I'm going there, too. Dr. Dave Young told 
me Beano was pretty sick. Shall we go? 

SCENE 2 

Ruth : Why, there's Ethel Hoelzel at the desk. She and Barbara John* 
son are the head nurses. 

Ray: Beano's been telling me that Virginia Burke and Peg Moynihan 
keep the pulses high with the male patients, and Ruth Bernard, Eleanor 
Lodge, and "Barrels" Fox have the doctors wondering what the world is 
coming to. 

Ruth: So I've heard, but they're not the only ones that wear the white 
caps. Mary Norcia, Clara Haddad, and Shirley Lowell work in near-by 
hospitals. You'll never guess who else has turned to nursing; none other 
than Edith Gelt and Ruthie Chadwick. 

Ra\ : Here's a list of the Staff: look, Judy Hill is the dietician and Carlo 
Tabellario, the head chemist. He has some good assistants, too. Edith 
Stewart, Bill Bunting, and Kay Elliott help him in his work.

izes in experimenting with rabbits, being a good friend of Perc's. Bob 
Hoelzel, Colin \\ etmore, Kddie Eaton and Bob Morenc) arc on the list as 
doctors. 

Ray: Here - a box from Sam Chivaro's flower shop on this table outside 

Heath) s room. Let S go in quietl) and see if he's awake. I guess we're out 
of luck: lies sleeping. 

Ruth: He certainl) hasn't changed a bit, has he, Ray? Did you see the 
hook he had on his table l>\ Hughie O'Rourke, "How to Keep Your IMone) 
in Six Kas\ Lessons." 

Ray: I noticed that, too, and did you see the pictures of Cissy Barrett, 
Pat Kennedy, and Marie Greco? Beano sure can pick them. 

Ruth: I'm glad to be away from that stuffy place. I'd much rather be 
out here with Boh Eaton and his gorgeous garden. 

Ray: Notice shy John Scannell going in the service entrance. He's still 
carrying on the milk business; and isn't that Eddie DeFrates leaving with an 
empty egg hasket? 

Ruth: It looks like him. There's the new housing project we've heard 
so much about. The constructors, Bistany and Harris, have Julius Hmiel- 
owski, Harleem Hajjar, and John Lenotte as foremen. Virginia Linton, 
Glenis Allatt, Mary Arzoorian, and Rose Ann Yaghmoorian try to keep them 
out of debt and a few feet away from Bill Fleming, the sheriff. 

SCENE 3 

Ray: Let's walk down town. Here's Melvin Clamp and Irving Sweeney's 
Dress Shop. Whom do you think they have working as models? — Gloria 
Brothers, Doreen Gagnon, Alice Ramskill, and Phyl McGuire! 

Ruth: Yes, and Billie Harnisch, Joan Joyce, Betty Beek and Barbara 
Blouin design the unusual creations. 

Ray: 1 hear that Agnes Zieba and Freda Issenberg are responsible for 
the artistic displays, which draw such crowds to the windows. Patty Pat- 
naude, Pop Jackson and Audrey Guthrie do the merchandising. 

Ruth: Isn't it remarkable that such a store should have so many of our 
classmates working in it? 

Ray: Yes — Margaret Murphy designs all of their ads that appear in 
the nation-wide magazine, published by Charlotte DeArville and Fernande 
Lavigne. Speaking of ads, look at that one over there, advertising Frank 
Zacharias' and Clayton Ritter's restaurant. Virginia Abbott's All-Girl Or- 
chestra plays for them.

SCENE 4 
Ruth: Don't I hear Irene Hoffman's giggles? 

Ray: Yes, she's there with Gertrude Hilbert, Louise Stroehla, and Leona 
Lutz. 

Ruth: Did you notice Thomas Jennings, the cashier, as we came in, and 
don't you recognize those waitresses? 

Ray: They are Virginia George, Dorothy MacLeod, Doris Marchand, 
and Pauline Playdon. 

Ruth: I Haven't seen Helen Richards and Arlene Boehm for ages. 

Ray: Well, there they are, and so are Vera Avedisian, Shirley Bahan 
and Lorraine Daigle. 

Ruth: Speaking of waitresses, whom have Frank Adamson and Whitney 
Hagar employed in their night-club? 

Ray : Frank told me that Ernestine Cowan, Muriel Poulin, and Alice 
Breton work there, with glamorous Teresa King as head waitress to draw 
the crowds. 

Ruth: Sylvia Rushforth is the hostess, and I've seen Flo-Dixie Hartung 
and her guitar advertized as being the guest performer. 

Ray: Arlene Annalaro, Beatrice Budron, and Shirley Phair keep the 
club's accounts straight. Claire Abercrombie and Bob Hambleton. along 
with Dot Chivall and her one and only, are steady customers. 

Ruth: Yes, and Eddie Bilapka still thinks that "Variety is the spice 
of life." 

Ray: I've quite often noticed Mrs. Charlie Bell (the former Ruth 
White) there with her husband. 

Ruth: Don Petzold and Barbara Stacy are another couple who seem to 
be enjoying themselves immensely. 

Rar: Someone has left a newspaper here on the seat beside me. 

Ruth: Lucky for us! — Look, Dorothy Keighley is Editor in chief. 
She has certainly been successful. 

Ray: I'll say, and two others that have been are Alphonse Pankauski 
and Walter Tuminowski. They have both followed the military line and 
are now generals. 

Ruth: Gosh, I didn't know that! Bernice Jackson and Roberta Turner 

65

are well-known actresses. Roberta has been vet) successful, combining her 
acting with singing. 

Ray: It sa\> here that Fred Brainerd and Howie Crowther arc pilots for 
a Transcontinental Company. 

Ruth: Did you see this write-up oJ Boogie Lambert, Peter DeFelice, and 
lonimic Chadwick playing in Boogie's Swing Hand? Say, look at this 
piece about Dick Ravgiala. It seems that he's still up to his same old 
tricks. He think- \nstralia is South Africa, I guess, because he's been con- 
victed of bigamy with two Vustralian debs. 

Ray: How our friends do come along! Let's turn to the sport page. 
Larry Kershaw usually has some good articles. Here's something about 
Roger Jones. 

Ruth: Oh yes, he, Donald Mack, Raffi Takesian and John Kenyon are 
playing baseball in the Big League now. 

Ray: Speaking of ball-players, Annie Peate has organized a Softball 
team with Lillian Farley, Minnie Tsakle, Lillian Kudronwcy, and Venira 
Scandura. 

Ruth: There's an article on Francis Rooney in this corner. I didn't 
know he was a high-jumper, did you? 

Ray: Yes, and Howard Dyke is making a name for himself as a runner. 

Ruth: Now let's turn to the Society page. I never miss Libby Schubert 
and Arlene Barden's column. I see Elsie Arnold, Barbara Steele and Esther 
McClintock are on the list of Happy-Weds. 

Ray: Here's an article advertising Carl DeLucia's Sweetheart Chicken 
Farm, and another one advertising Pauline Bulger's "Petit Pet Place." 

Ruth: Oh, I've been there; she has Dot Weinhold and Evelyn Haddad 
helping her. Lillian Habeeb does the Bookkeeping. It's just the place to 
take a sick lizard. And did you notice these poems by Phyllis Houghton 
and Fred Nutton? By the way, Ruth Dean is head librarian at Nevins. 

Ray: I saw her a few days ago. She said that Norma Macfarlane 
and Lilly Russell teach in the high school. Lucille Cordeau teaches French, 
and Grace Langille tries to teach the new generation how not to be like their 
parents. 

Ruth: That reminds me of the secretarial school run by Marion Worthy 
and Helen Wilson. Several of the girls we knew at high school are in- 
structors. Among them are Arlene Morrison, Dot Wentzel, and Dot Black. 

Ray: Yes, and I think Lorraine Bistany and Gladys Hadfield are sec- 
retaries in the school.

Ruth: Remember Anson Cooke? 

Ray: Sure, he's manager of W M H S Broadcasting Station. He al- 
ways had a bug for radio. 

Ruth: I'll never forget Donald Mackay and his questions in our chem- 
istry class. He's a dentist now, isn't he? 

Ray: So I've discovered. Forester Percy Wilson made the front page 
with his new invention, the square tree. 

Ruth: Square tree? 

Ray: Yes, it's supposed to revolutionize the lumbering business. 

Ruth: It's getting late, and I must be going home. I have to wake up 
early tomorrow and report to work as a medical secretary.

E arc assembled here to plant the symbolic ivy. Today, the planting 
(.1 the i\\ vine is not simpl) a class tradition, it is the hope of this 
class for a better world after the conflict. It is fitting at this lime to 
make a comparison between the i\\ and our democracy. 

The ivy vine has been very carefully nurtured until the time when it is 
ready to stand alone. Even though it is supposedly capable of sustaining 
itself, it still must be protected long enough to allow the plant to become 
accustomed to its new environment. 

\fler the short "breaking in"" period is over, the ivy will flourish. Ten- 
drils will shoot out from the vine and attach themselves securely to any 
lodging in the stone wall. As new vines appear, new tendrils will spring 
forth to grasp a projection or foothold. Neither tendril is able to hold the 
vines, but many tendrils, each doing its share, will support the vine under 
adverse conditions. 

\s the years go by, the vines will cover more and more of the surface. 
Then the day will come when the ivy has covered the entire wall. The 
luxurious growth of ivy will add dignity to the wall, and will serve as an 
inspiration to future students. 

Even as the small ivy was nurtured, so must democracy be carefully 
cared for. Basic principles of democracy may be inculcated in the mind of 
a small child. Through the years when the child is growing, the principles 
must be kept alive continually, — not intermittently. After these primary 
steps are accomplished, the child will think in terms of democratic tenets. 
Soon the child may take these tenets for granted. 

Now it must be remembered that for these same fundamental truths, men, 
women, and children are dying by violence, hunger, and degradation. All 
this slaughter can be traced back to the carrying out of one of the most 
diabolical machinations ever conceived by a mind consumed with fever, 
threaded by tortuous channels and filled with a desire for cruelty. 

One of the smallest integral parts of democracy, the home, acts as the 
tendril for a vine. The whole network of a democratic government is held 
to the country by the many homes making up the nations. As a nation ex- 

58

panels, the homes spring forth on the new land. Acting as the tendrils, the 
homes again spread democracy over the land. 

Thus it may be seen that democracy will spread, — not necessarily by 
conquest, — from one country to another. Perhaps, after this terrible war 
is won, the vines of democracy will spread over continents and oceans, until, 
like the ivy covering the wall, the whole world is covered beneath the pro- 
tective and beneficial network. 

From this comparison, let us hope that we may further the propagation 
of democratic ideals to every nation after the brutal, tyrannical enemies of 
mankind are exterminated.

SOPHOMORE RECEPTION October 9, 1942 was an exciting night 
for the new Sophomores. They were greeted at their first high school party, 
the Sophomore Reception. The grand march was led by Senior class pres- 
ident, Frank Vdamson, and Doreen Gagnon, followed by Sophomore pres- 
ident Alfred Kodis and Carolyn Meinelt. Vfter the grand march the 
Sophomore girls were presented with carnations. 

SENIOR PLA^ Our Senior Play, "Young Barry," was presented with 

success at the Central School auditorium on December 4, 1942. The annual 
affair was attended by a large audience who applauded the acting of the 
entire cast. 

SENIOR PARTY- On January 15, 1943 the "Senior Party" was held in 
the form of a campus dance. During the evening the faculty picked Miss 
Betty Jane Cnosson as the "campus queen. A skit, "The Burlap Boys," 
was presented by Dick Ravgiala, Beano Rogers, Perc Wilson, Frank Adam- 
son, and Whit Hager. 

JUNIOR PARTY- At the Junior Party, on the 29th of January, a conga 
line, led by Frank Petralia, was the feature event of the evening- The party 
was a largely attended affair despite the fact that everyone had to walk be- 
cause of gasoline rationing. 

SOPHOMORE PARTY- On February 12, Lincoln's birthday, the Soph- 
omore Party was held. The evening was enlivened by Mr. Ingalls' and 
Frank Petralia's singing of "Home on the Range." 

MILITARY BALL- The gala "Military Ball" was held with its usual 
success on March 19, 1943. The grand march, led by Major Pankauski and 
Miss Henrietta Busta was more impressive than ever as the girls marched 
under the arch of sabres in their beautiful gowns. 

SENIOR PROM — The Senior Prom, the last high school dance for the 
graduating class was held on June 4, 1943 and was another outstanding 
affair among the social events.

ERE is the band we're so proud of. Under the capable direction of 
Mr. Harold McDonnell, it has achieved A-ratings at every conclave, 
besides appearing at Hampton Beach annually, and willingly provid- 
ing, at all times, music for benefits around town. A band concert and dance 
has been held every year to acquire enough money to buy uniforms and 
music. The members have attended rehearsals faithfully. Yes, the band 
has risen from an ordinary school band to one of professional standards; 
and most of the credit goes to its skilful instructor, Harold McDonnell.
